Following a serious lower leg injury sustained 26 minutes into Saturday's win over Dragons, Edinburgh Rugby no 8 Cornell Du Preez underwent surgery at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh over the weekend.
Cornell and all at Edinburgh Rugby convey our heartfelt thanks to the Paramedics from the Scottish Ambulance Service who attended to him on the pitch, to the orthopaedic department, trauma consultants and staff at the Royal Infirmary for their expertise and care during his stay, and to the many supporters for their goodwill messages.
Now back in the care of the Edinburgh Rugby medical team, Cornell's progress will be monitored over the next few weeks to enable a timeline for recovery to be put together.
Aside from the usual bumps and bruises consistent with such an encounter, there were no further significant injuries from Saturday's game.
Players currently on the injured list are: Carl Bezuidenhout (knee), Wicus Blaauw (knee), Neil Cochrane (hamstring), David Denton (hamstring), Jamie Farndale (knee), Stuart McInally (foot), Fraser McKenzie (knee), Matt Scott (shoulder) and Michael Tait (knee). All are progressing well with their respective recoveries.
